  3. Re: Are Thomastik-Infeld Strings That much Better?

    Thanks for pointing that out for me, Pat! I was off and it makes a difference to be sure.
  4. Re: Are Thomastik-Infeld Strings That much Better?

    Pat, I appreciate this reference because it is a rare offering of both round wound and flat wound steel. I like that tone and this gives me another option to consider. I will compare the set-up of...
  5. Re: Are Thomastik-Infeld Strings That much Better?

    Thanks for that ... what is your scale length? Mine is 20”. Oops! You said that it also is 20”! Guess they wouldn’t fit. You saved me $60.
  6. Re: Are Thomastik-Infeld Strings That much Better?

    I have been playing the Octave a couple of hours today and I am getting accustomed to it and really enjoying trying a variety of things. Fiddle tunes, using it to accompany singing (a song Pat...
  7. Re: Are Thomastik-Infeld Strings That much Better?

    Good info guys. My take away is that I will possibly try the Curt Mangans but not the Thomaskins. Otherwise, I enjoy the D’Addario monels on my MT and may want to try an octave set if there is such...

    I have a New Eastman MDO 305 Octave, which I really like the way it is opening up new opportunities to grow as a mandolin player. I have noticed the Thomastik-Infeld strings which run just over...

    Re: post a video of yourself

    I didn't think I would be able to still sing with a tracheostomy in my throat. With a Passy Muir Speaking Valve I am able to sing a bit. I did a cover of a folk gospel tune this morning with my...

    Re: Shout out to Collings

    I love my MT! It is a gloss top, bound in ivory, with a wide nut. A ‘17. I just love the loud and warm tone, with even volume across the courses. The wood selection sounds exceptional. It is so...
  20. Re: D'Addario's new Chris Thile signature mandolin pick

    I appreciate the post! I didn't know about this fun option. I do have the BC version (the CT55) but it would be something to think about with the signature printed on it and the contribution to...

    Re: looking for a travel mando

    I am with Pat. I think the flat top route is an excellent answer to your travel mandolin needs. Lots of volume, easy to pack and a lot of fun to play.
